Stopped PvPing around last September when life got busy, etc. Last week or so I started PvPing more and was on the receiving end of some attacks that left me scratching my head. I was playing a 7 Light Armor magicka NB with ~300CP.
First, insta-killed several times in a row by a couple gankers from stealth. Death recaps showed this:
My guess is sneak up to melee range, draw bow heavy attack, then click ability button (Surprise Attack, which gives armor debuff) = both hit from stealth instantly, with the Heavy Attack being buffed by the SA's armor debuff. I tried messaging these two PC NA EP players, but they were in anon mode (can't private message), of course. Is this correct?
Same players, this time I survived the initial onslaught only to get hit by 4 attacks in 2 seconds (note timestamps in chat window):
However, I exacted my revenge soon after, killing the ganker 1v1 after popping him from stealth. Extremely satisfying
Also, I thought Dawn Breaker hitting multiple times got fixed..? Again, multiple attacks within 2 seconds.
All this happened on weekend afternoons with only minor lag. So tell me PvPers, is this just how it is and I need to adjust my build/playstyle, or was something up (bugs, macros, etc) about these encounters?
